Storyline

Superintendent Corrado Cattani is dead. After his lover, the beautiful judge Silvia Conti, recovers somewhat from the shock over his death, she decides to take vengeance and carry on his long standing battle against the Mafia. She vows to put the unscrupulous businessman Espinosa, upon whom she lays the blame for the killing of Cattani, behind bars. Tano, who killed his wife, is already in prison; Silvia offers him mitigation if he testifies against the Mafia and Espinosa, but Tano remains silent. When Mimmo, the son of the influential Mafia-family Linori, is murdered in Sicily by an American, Masino, Silvia follows the killer all the way to the U.S., where his tracks disperse. Silvia has no idea that at the same time the former Italian policeman Davide Licata, who had to flee from the Mafia to New York for fear about the safety of his wife and son, is infil-trating the Linori family disguised as a domestic servant in order to prove their participation in international ...

18 January 2013 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

fight against mafia has not end. only the actors are different. but the shadow of Cattani and his rules are present in each action. sure, at first sigh, absence of Michele Placido can be a risk. but, in this case, the story is better, the structure is clear. and the change has deep roots to be more than part of a legend. because Silvia Conti is not master of a legacy but herself. and this is the secret - each character has force to be more than silhouette of script. this series has another virtue - its reflects impressive precise team work. same measure, same force of acting. and great delicacy of details. a woman against crime. law more important than pure revenge. this is message. and its form is remarkable.
